Meet Georgia Sheron
Professional Photographer and Published Author
Georgia Sheron has been involved in the creative world for over 40 years, working in the world of fashion design, operating art galleries, teaching art at St. Margaret’s McTernan School in Waterbury (now Chase Collegiate), doing freelance photography and being involved with magazine journalism.
In 1992 Georgia opened a professional photography studio business in the Old Pin Shop in Oakville. For more than 20 years, she produced children’s portraits, wedding photographs, commercial work, and editorial pieces in this studio. Georgia closed her studio in 2014 and now exhibits her fine art photography in museums, libraries, and galleries. Georgia’s work continues to be shown at Southbury Library, the Whittemore Library in Naugatuck, and the Silas Bronson Library in Waterbury.
Georgia’s first book, Uncle John: Portraits of a True Yankee Farmer, was published in 2013 by Bauhan Press. The book combines black and white images Georgia photographed with Southbury farmer John Ludorf over a period of a dozen years with John’s observations obtained through interviews to portray manual farming life in the 20th century.
Georgia believes the arts matter because “life without art…is unimaginative and out of touch with emotions.” She values the ACC because it connects “artists of many talents” who “would be looking around for a place to capture the heart and mind of an audience hungry for an image viewing, concert performance, or the imaginative works of craftsmen.”
